    It has been fascinating to read the history of Henry Hartley by Ian Mackay.

    My wife is the great great granddaughter of Hartley. Her grandmother, Henrietta Hartley, was Hartley’s granddaughter (daughter of his son Thomas, I believe) who married her grandfather Michael Hayes at Thornhill in 1891 (as stated in the family bible from that time that we have in our possession). They moved to Rhodesia and farmed in the Marandellas region (I assume after Thornhill farm had been burned down by the British). My wife’s father was their fourteenth and youngest offspring who was born on the farm and raised by his sisters.

    Ian mentions some of Hartley’s descendants, one of whom, Simon, still lives in the Magaliesberg area, and this information might be of interest to them.
